The origins of Linux

Linux was originally developed for Intel x86 personal computers and was free for anyone that wanted a copy. It was never popular on personal computers due to its technical nature and being user unfriendly but you’d be surprised at the reach it has in the world of supercomputing. In fact, the vast majority of the world’s supercomputer run a version of Linux, no doubt in part because it can be customized and is free of the security issues and bugs of something like Windows.

Linux is an entirely free and open source operating system so the code can be modified by anyone without fear of repercussions. If you’re a programmer and you want to try something out then get in there and have fun with it. It was born out of Unix, developed into what it is today, and then modified endlessly by various programmers to become an exceptionally useful piece of software.
